Not all that tracks that great
This is a good album but not all tracks are equally great. The best tracks are 3, 4, and 5, which feature Raga Durga which is very joyful and soothing. I will rate all these tracks with 5 stars. The tracks don't flow very smoothly because the choice of ragas is not that great. For example, Durga is joyful whereas Keeravani (also called Kirwani) is full of pathos and hence not very suitable for meditation (it has a potential to make you sad and nostalgic). I agree with the other reviewer that long tracks are better suited for relaxation. For that matter, this album could have just featured Raga Durga. And the combination of flute and violin isn't always great. Flute is the most soothing instrument. The artists (not 'Music for Deep Relaxation' but V.K. Raman & V. Srikanth!) are great but this album could have been produced much better than this. Bigges complaint: the choice of ragas. Don't care too much for what is in brackets -- it is just a catchy phrase!
If this album has given a good start for you in Indian music, that is great. But this is just a beginning. Explore further and sample the music of greats like Ravi Shankar, Shivkumar Sharma, Hariprasad Chaurasia, T. N. Krishnan, Lalgudi Jayaraman, Jasraj, M. S. Gopalakrishnan etc. There is a whole new world to this raga music.
Really gorgeous and unique!
This is a unique recording. I have never heard the flute played with violin in such a simple and exquisite manner. This music is really soothing and relaxing. I laid down after work and played this CD and I felt very rested and rejuvenated. The masters that played the music really go deep into the limitless depth and beauty of classical Indian music.
